GSA got to my dealer, some install pics...

and turns out my center trim tab was broken...last pic is the center tab. Pics also show the new swim platform brackets which are necessary for MC boats apparently. Dealer just got the kit yesterday, they must be bored to death over there to start this so early! Also doing the plumbing and install of the 750 lb fat sac for the starboard side, there never was a sac installed before. I figure I'll mount the controls by the perfectpass unless someone has other thoughts...

thought about black or even red but figured I'd match my center trim plate. black looks nicer honestly.

Looks good. Is your MC dealer doing the install?

oh hells yes. I wouldn't even attempt this honestly. I'm sure it's fairly straightforward but spending $4k on this, I don't mind the $700 for the install to ensure it's done correctly and my boat, hopefully, won't sink! I think it looks kind of batmanish. Even my wife was on board with this, which is odd as she doesn't usually like it when I blow this kind of money. But when she was faced with the other option, buying a new boat for $75k, she warmed up to the GSA pretty quickly!

Looking good. My kit came with Atwood marine silicone. Okay, but it's not the good 3M stuff. Shaping the white plastic standoff's for our hull is a tedious task. Trust me they earned the $700 on this one.

Looks like the center tab got hit to cause the welds to break and put that nice dent in it. Any idea when and how that happened? Good news is it shouldn't be hard for a decent welder to get that looking good again.

Sounds like you're putting in dedicated pumps for the new sacks? That will certainly shorten your fill time!
